Yes, you can bring your own E-Bike, you can rent a battery from Luca as long as it is compatible, they only carry Specialized. If the whole group wishes to bring their bikes please advise us in advance so we can be sure to arrange a trailer for the airport transfer.
You can bring your own pedal, non E-bike, but you'll be on the same program as the E-Bikers, unless the whole group bring their own bikes. Please inquire for a price for a tour built around uplifts.
In both instances the price per person will change, we can advise on inquiry.

Just home from the Tweed Valley Enduro Long Weekend with MTB Beds. Wow what a weekend. Epic riding, superb guides, great accommodation and some more epic riding. A superb intro to the Tweed Valley and the riding on offer at Glentress, The Golfie and Innerleithen. Rich and The MTB Beds team are superb - helpful, knowledgeable and responsive and Murray and the Team at Glentress Hotel were brilliant. Thoroughly recommended.

Absolutely brilliant experience. The accommodation (Ravenscraig guest house) and food was spot on for both quality and the location. Bike security and facilities for wash and repair was excellent. Our guide, Mike Wilkes couldn’t have done a better job of informing and including all the riders in our group. The routes ticked all the boxes and the trails and views will be memories to last a lifetime. Bought the ticket, had a great ride😁👍
